The now-viral footage of the incident shows him being choked by the cop, who at one point, appears to go for a full-nelson submission hold before adjusting his grip and grabbing Wall's throat. He said the police officer's actions against him, however, were unjustified because his hands were in the air when he was choked.

Wall later posted a video of his arrest to Facebook. "Both incidents escalated quickly, and our employees called the police because of safety concerns for their customers and themselves".

Dr. Bernice King, the youngest daughter of civil rights legend Martin Luther King Jr., is calling for a boycott of Waffle House franchises until the popular chain implements changes following a viral video showing an unarmed black man being violently arrested at a North Carolina store.

The district attorney, who serves Duplin, Sampson, Jones and Onslow counties, said he was made aware Wednesday afternoon, May 9, of the May 4 incident at the Waffle House, located on N.C. 24 near Interstate 40, not far from the Sampson-Duplin line.

On April 22, a black woman named Chikesia Clemons was wrestled to the ground by three white police officers in a disturbing encounter that was also caught on video.

He did not respond to requests for comment. The altercation, which has triggered an investigation by the department, took place Saturday, May 5.

Connors, a pastor who also worked as the chaplain for the police department before he was elected a year ago as mayor of the small town about an hour south of Raleigh, said that the officer used force because Wall "refused to cooperate or follow them or obey the law". Police said Wall was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for the argument inside the Waffle House. The video, which was posted to Facebook, has been viewed thousands of times. "We are now investigating the whole incident, interviewing witnesses and gathering additional video", he stated.

The officer in the video has not been identified.

"He could have de-escalated the situation and moved on", Moore said of the officer.

Coffee giant Starbucks is initiating such training later this month at more than 8,000 us stores after two black men were arrested at a Philadelphia store while waiting for a business meeting - an incident that touched off protests and led to a wider conversation about how people of color are treated in public spaces. This comes the same day the State Bureau of Investigation announced it was investigating the incident. "Said they've seen him do this before".
